I am an EMDRIA-certified therapist with 15+ years of experience serving individuals and families in Charlottesville. I operate from a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach and incorporate interventions from the following therapeutic modalities, depending on the client's goals for therapy and presenting issues: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, expressive arts therapies.
Areas of clinical interest include the treatment of PTSD, culturally-based stress and trauma, affirming care for transgender and gender-expansive people, and sociocultural identity development. I provide diagnostic assessment and letters of support for people seeking gender-affirming medical interventions.
I have worked in community mental health, child welfare, refugee resettlement, and advocacy settings, and my clinical work is informed by those experiences. I am a member of the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).
